CHAPTER I. 

INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. 

The investigation into the personal names of the people of any country is a subject surrounded 
with very great interest. By means of family nomenclature much light can be thrown on the 
early employments and customs of a people, as well as the sources from which they have spnmg. 
In fact, the history of our country lies enshrined in its Surnames ; and on our shop fronts and 
in our graveyards may be found side by side the names of the descendants of the Milesian Prince^ of 
the Scandinavian Viking, and of the Norman Knight. 

So far back as 1851 the Census Commissioners for that year attempted to arrange the Sumam&«( of 
the country in such a way as to show their distribution. The effort, however, proved unsuccessful, owing 
to the diflBculties met with, and when the names were partially extracted the task was abandoned. 

At the termination of the Census of 1881, the late Dr. Lyons, then M.P. for Dublin, pressed the 
Government to institute an inquiry into names, such as had been attempted in 1851, and his 
proposal was very favourably entertained, but as th^ work of the Census Department was then 
about to close, the Commissioners were unable to comply with his request. 

It may be observed that as a preliminary to any successful effort to tabulate the Surnames in the 
country, some codification of the variations in form and spelling was necessary. With this and other 
objects in view, from the materials collected during many years in the General Register OflS^e, 
as well as special reports obtained from local officers in the Registration Service, I prepared in 
1890 a treatise entitled "Varieties and Synonymes of Surnames and Christian Names in Ireland," 
which was issued by the Registrar-General for use in connection with searches in his Office, and 
in those of the Superintendent Registrars and Registrars throughout the country. 

That book set forth the principal orthographical changes in Surnames, exhibiting the varieties in 
spelling ; the use of prefixes and affixes ; spelling according to usual pronunciation ; older forms of 
names showing the alterations they have undergone in course of time ; local variations in spelling 
and form, exhibiting the tendency of names to assume different forms in different localities ; variations 
in spelling at pleasure ; and changes owing to illiteracy and other causes. 

It further contained examples of the use of entirely different names interchangeably by the same 
person, a practice which prevails in- some parts of Ireland, many being cases of translation of 
Irish names into English, or vice versa, or equivalents, modifications, or corruptions of them. A 
table was also given showing cases of English names and their Irish equivalents met with in the 



8 Appendix to the Twenty-ninth Report oj the 

Registration Records. The work also contained an Alphabetical List of Surnames, with their 
Varieties and Synonjrmes, and a Table showing the respective Poor Law Unions and Districts in 
which many of the peculiarities had been found. 

The reception which that book met with at the hands of the Press and the Public was very- 
gratifying, and I determined to attempt, in connection with the Census of 1891, the interesting 
work of extracting and classifying the Surnames of the population generally on the lines unsuccess- 
fully followed in 1851. An unexpected occurrence, however, prevented this. The Census Records 
which previously afforded complete data for the purpose were, in 1891, rendered imperfect in this 
respect, owing to the insertion of a clause in the Act of Parliament, directing that in the case of 
Inmates of Public Institutions, initials only should be given in the Enumeration Forms. 

The Surnames of a considerable number of persons were thus omitted from these Records, and 
the question arose whether with these imperfect data, the work should be abandoned, or whether 
the general results could not be obtained with sufficient accuracy from othei sources. 

The Indexes of the General Register Office afford a reliable basis on which to found general 
conclusions regarding Surnames, and though in the Index for any one year all the Surnames in the 
comitry will not be found, yet if a name be of frequent occurrence it is certain to be represented in 
the Index, the, number of entries opposite the name indicating its relative frequency with respect to 
other 8umames. 

The Indexes further afford facilities for distributing the Surnames over^the country, as in the 
case of each entry the Poor Law Union is given. 

In view of these facts, I decided to take these Indexes as the basis of my inquiries, and I was 
confirmed in my determination by the opinion of that eminent scholar, the late Right Rev. Dr. 
Reeves, Lord Bishop of Down, Connor, and Dromore, and President of the Royal Irish Academy, 
who encouraged me to undertake the task, and promised me his cordial assistance. His lamented 
death, however, unhappily deprived me of the benefit of his valuable aid and advice. 

I may mention that both in England and Scotland the subject of personal nomenclature has 
received attention, and statistics relating' thereto, derived from the Indexes of Births, Deaths, and 
Marriages, have been published by the respective Registrars-General, to which I shall further 
refer. 

I have divided the consideration of the subject as follows : — 

1st. The principal Surnames'in Ireland compared with those in -other portions of the United 
Kingdom. 

2nd. The Derivation of Surnames in Ireland. 

. 3rd. Surnames in Ireland Ethnologically considered. 

4th The Local Distribution of Surnames in Ireland.

Registrar-General of Marriages, Births, and Deaths in Ireland. 11 

It will be seen from the foregoing Tables that the name "Murphy" stands first in Ireland, in order 
of numerical strength, representing an estimated number of 62,600 persons (or 13-3 per thousand of 
the population), and that in both England and Scotland the name " Smith " occupies the first place, 
representing, it is estimated, in England and Wales (in the year 1853) 253,600 persons (or 13-8 
per thousand of the population), and in Scotland (in the year 1863) 44,200, or 14-2 per thousand 
of the population. 

The second place on the Irish List is held by the name " Kelly," representing 55,900 persons (or 
11-8 per thousand of the population). In the English Tables "Jones " has the second place, repre- 
senting, it is estimated, 242,100 people (or 13-2 per thousand). It is the most common name in the 
Principality of Wales, and its prevalence there has given it the high place it occupies on the List 
for the country generally. The Registrar- General for England states that in some years the 
Joneses contributed to the registers a larger number of Births than even the Smiths. In Scotland 
the second place is held by " M'Donald," the estimated population bearing the name being 36,600, 
or 11 '8 per thousand. 

The third place in Ireland is filled by " Sullivan," the number of persons of which name it is 
estimated amounts to 43,600 (or 9'2 per thousand). In England " Williams " is the third name in 
numerical importance, representing 159,900 persons (or 87 per thousand). In Scotland " Brown " 
■tands third, reckoning 88,800 (or 10-9 per thousand). 

Several names among the first Fifty on the Irish List appear on the Lists for one or both of the 
other Divisions of the Kingdom. Thus " Smith " is 5th in Ireland and 1st in England and Scotland ; 
"Murray" is 18th in Ireland, and 17th in Scotland; "Moore "is 20th in Ireland, and 39th in 
England; "Wilson" is 26th in Ireland, 11th in England, and 8th in Scotland; "Campbell" is 31st 
in Ireland, and 7th in Scotland; "Clarke" (or "Clark") is 32nd in Ireland, 9th (taking both 
spellings) in England, and 18th in Scotland; "Johnston" appears 33rd in Ireland, and 16th in 
Scotland ; " Hughes " appears 34th in Ireland, and 19th in England ; " Brown " is 37th in Ireland, 6th 
in England, and 3rd in Scotland ; " Martin " is 38th in Ireland, 31st in England, and 48th in 
Scotland; "Thompson" or "Thomson" is 42nd in Ireland, 15th in England, and 4th in Scotland; 
" White " is 50th in Ireland, 22nd in England, and 41st in Scotland. 

It will also be observed that among the second fifty names on the Irish List, several appear in 
the first fifty of England or Scotland. Thus, — " Stewart " is 58th in Ireland, and 6th in Scotland 
" Robinson," 73rd in Ireland, and 12th in England ; " Ward " 78th in Ireland, and 30 th in England 
" Reid " 81st in Ireland, and 13th in Scotland ; " Graham," 82nd in Ireland, and 40th in Scotland 
" King " 86th in Ireland, and 36th in England ; " Bell " 89th in Ireland, and 47th in Scotland 
" Scott " 90th in Ireland, and 10th in Scotland ; and " M'Donald " which is 95th in Ireland, is 2nd 
in Scotland. 

It will be perceived, however, that most of the names in Ireland with the larger numbers are 
peculiar to this country, representing the names of Irish Clans and Septs, such as the Murphys, 
Kellys, Sullivans, O'Briens, Byrnes, Ryans, Connors, O'Neills, ReiUys, Doyles, McCarthys, 
Gallaghers, Dohertys, &;c. 

The Scotch Clans are similarly represented in the List for Scotland, such as the M'Donalds, 
M'Kenzies, M'Gregors, M'Leods, M'Kays, Campbells, Stewarts, Camerons, &c.

Appendix to the Twenty-ninth Report of the 



CHAPTER III. 



DERIVATION OF SURNAMES. 

The consideration of the Derivation of Surnames forms an interesting branch of study, but it 
would be impossible within the limits of this Report to enter fully into the subject, and all that 
can be attempted is to give a brief summary of its main sub-divisions as applicable to this 
Country. 

Surnames in Ireland may be divided with reference to their derivation into six 
Tiz.: — 

1. Feom Peesonal Names. 

2. From Rank or Occupation. 

3. Fbom the Animal, Vegetable, and Mineral Kingdoms. 

4. From Locality. 

5. From Personal Peculiarities or Attributes. 

6. Other Surnames. 



1. The following Examples may be given of Surnames derived from Personal names : — 

Celtic Names. 
O'Toole, 



McShane, . (MacShaum — Irish. Son of John). 

McFadden, . (MacPaidm — Irish. Son of little 
Patrick). 

McAndrew, . (MacAindria — Irish. Son of An- 
drew). 

McHugh, . (MacAedha — Irish. Son of Hugh). 

MoDermott . {McusDiarmada — Irish. Son of 
Diarmaid). 

O'Ferrall, . {O'FecurgaU — Irish. The descendant 
of Feargal). 



. (P'Tuathail — Irish. The descendant 
of Tuathal). 

McDonnell, . (MacDomTmaUl — Irish. Son of 
Donall). 

McKeown, . {MacEoghmn — Irish. SonofEoghan 
or Owen). 

McRory, . (MacEuadhri — Irish. Son of Bua- 

dhri (Rory). 



Many Surnames derived from Celtic Names are compounded with the word " Oiolla " — a 
servant (or disciple) of — such as — 

Gilchrist, 



Kilbride, . (GiollaBridghid — the Servant of St. 

Bridget). 
Gilpatrick, . (GiollaPadraic — the Servant of St, 

Patrick). 



. (GioUaChriosd — the Servant of 
Christ). 

Gildea, . . {GiollaB^— the Servant of God). 
Gilfoyle, . {GioUaPhoil—th.eSevva.ntoiSt.Paiil). 



Maol is also prefixed to the names of Saints, signifying a bald or tonsured person who became 
the spiritual servant of such Saint, as — 

Maol-Dtibhan [Maoldun], — the Servant of St. Dubhan. Anglicised Muldoon.

4. Su/mames derived from Locality. — Surnames derived from locality, which in England and 
Scotland form a large class, are but rarely met with in this country, and in most of these cases 
considerable doubt exists as to whether the surname has been acquired from the locality. 

The following surnames amongst others are the names of localities in Ireland : —

6. Other Surnames. — There are many surnames not falling in any of the above classes, such jis 
those from : —

McCIave (iawiA— Irish— the hand) ; (English Names)— Beard, Foote, Head, Legge. 

Fames of the Seasons, as Spring, Summers, Winter. 
Points of the Compass, as North, South, East, West. 
Natural Objects, as Field, Flood, Hill, Snow. 
Other Sov/rces, as Church, Ferry, Hood, Hunt, Kirk. 

It may be interesting to quote here the remarks of the Registrar-General for England and Wales 
regarding the derivation of Family Names found in those countries. 



14 ''Appendix to the Twenty-ninth Report of the 

Major Graham remarked in his 16th Annual Report, already referred to : — " The most striking cir- 
cumstance presented by the Indexes is the extraordinary number and variety of the surnames of the 
English people. Derived from almost every imaginable object, from the names of places, from trades 
and employments, from personal peculiarities, from the Christian name of the father, from objects in 
the Animal and Vegetable kingdoms, from things animate and inanimate ; their varied character is 
as remarkable as their singularity is often striking. Some of the terms which swell the list are so 
odd, and even ridiculous, that it is difficult to assign any satisfactory reason for their assumption in 
the first instance as family names, unless indeed, as has been conjectured, they were nicknames or 
sobriquets, which neither the first bearers nor their posterity could avoid." 

Referring to Welsh surnames he stated : — " In Wales, however, the surnames, if surnames they can 
be called, do not present the same variety, most of them having been formed in a simple manner from 
the Christian or fore-name of the father in the Genitive case, son being understood. Thus, Evan's 
son became Evans, John's son Jones, &c. Others were derived from the father's name coalesced with 
a form of the word ap or hab (son of), by which Hugh ap Howell became Powell, Evan ap Hugh 
became Pugh, and in like manner were formed nearly all the Welsh surnames beginning with the 
letters B and P. Hereditary surnames were not in use even amongst the gentry of Wales until the 
time of Henry VIII., nor were they generally established until a much later period ; indeed, at the 
present day they can scarcely be said to be adopted amongst the lower classes in the wilder (districts, 
where, as the marriage registers show, the Christian name of the father still frequently becomes the 
patronymic of the son in the manner just described." ^ 

With respect to Cornish names the Report states:— "From the circumstance of their common 
British origin it might be supposed that the Welsh people and the inhabitants of Cornwall would 
exhibit some analogous principles in the construction of their surnames ; such, however, is not the 
case. The Cornish surnames are mostly local, derived from words of' British root, and they are 
often strikingly peculiar. A large number have the prefix Tre, a town ; the words Pol, a pool. Pen, 
a head) Ros, a heath, and Lan, a church, are also of frequent occurrence in surnames." 

With regard to the derivation of names in Scotland, the Registrar-General for that country in 
his 6th Report, remarks : — " Almost all the names of our Border and Highland Clans belong to 
the first class" [Surnames derived from Patronymics], "and they are peculiarly Scottish, neither 
belonging to England nor to Ireland. These Surnames include all those beginning with Mac, as 
Macgregor, Mactaggart, etc., besides those simple ones, as Eraser, Douglas, Cameron, Kerr, Grant 
&c." ..." The Surnames derived from rank and occupation are very numerous, but are equally- 
common to England as to Scotland." ..." Surnames taken from the locality in which the 
persons originally resided form a very numerous class, and they also are, to a great extent, peculiar 
to Scotland, seeing that there is scarcely a county, parish, town, river, or remarkable locality but 
has its name perpetuated in the Surnames." ..." The sobriquets perpetuated as Surnames 
are, perhaps, the most varied of all, and embrace every personal or mental quality supposed to reside 
in the different individuals to whom they were originally given.'' 

The personal Names in the Isle of Man are of considerable interest in connection with Irish 
Surnames, as that Island has passed through phases of occupancy some what similar to those of this 
country. Its history may be divided into three periods: the first, when it was inhabited by Celts 
similar in race and language to the Irish ; the second, the period of Scandinavian domination • and 
the third, the time during which it has been under English dominion. The names in the Island 
represent each of these periods. As in Ireland, the largest number of names are derived from words 
of Celtic origin ; some are from Scandinavian roots, and there are now a large number of names 
traceable to English sources, 

On visiting the Island, I was much struck by the peculiar forms many names had assumed there 
difiering from those found in Ireland, though evidently derived from the same source. Thus the 
name " Clucas " is the Manx form of Lucas, both names being derived from the Celtic MacLucais— 
son of Luke. " Cannell," a name pecuKar to the Isle of Man, is derived from the Celtic MacOonaill 
son of ConaU. The Irish modem form is M'Connell. 

"Kermode," another Manx name, is contracted from the Celtic name MacDiarmaid, son of 
Diarmaid— Irish modem form M'Dermott. "Mylchreest" is derived from the Celtic] MacGioIla 
Chrlosd— the son of the servant of Christ. The modem Irish form is Gilchrist. Many other 
instances could be adduced.

CHAPTER IV. 

SURNAMES IN IRELAND ETHNOLOGICALLy CONSIDERED. 

Celtic Names. 

The present population of Ireland is a mixture of a number of different races in which the 
Celtic is the predominant element. 

The great bulk of the most common names in the country are undoubtedly of Celtic origin. 
Many oi them still retain the- prefixes and Mac, the former peculiar to Ireland and the latter 
used both in Ireland and Scotland. In many cases, however, these prefixes have been dropped. 
It is a matter of common occurrence to find in the same record Celtic names written with the 
prefixes and Mac and without them. 

It is impossible now, in some cases, to trace whether families are of Celtic or English descent, as 
some of the English settlers took Irish names, and Irish families were compelled to adopt 
English surnames. 

By a Statute of 1366, it was provided, inter alia, that "Every Englishman do use the English 
language, and be named by an English name, leaving off entirely the manner of naming used by 
the Irish " ; and in 1465 (5 Ed. IV., cap. 3), a law was passed enacting " that every Irishman that 
dwells betwixt or amongst Englishmen in the County of Dublin, Myeth, VrieU, and Kildare . . . 
shall take to him an English Surname of one town, as Sutton, Chester, Trym, Skryne, Corke, 
KinsaJe; or colour, as white, blacke, browne ; or arte or science, as smith or carpenter; or office, 
as cooke, butler . . ." 

The existence of the two languages in the country accounts for the practice which prevails in 
some parts of Ireland of using English names with their Irish translations or equivalents 
interchangeably, some particulars regarding which will be found in my Book of Varieties and 
Synonymes of Surnames and Christian Names in Ireland already referred to. 

The Annals of the Four Masters, and other eminent Authorities, afford information whereby the 
ancient location of the principal Irish Tribes and Septs can be approximately ascertained, and 
Tribal Maps of Ireland have been published from time to time, among which the following may be 
mentioned : — 

1. A Map showing the territories of the Irish Princes and Chiefs — the various Septs subordinate 
to them, &c., also the Districts in possession of the English Lords, their armorial bearings, &c., 
A.D. 1567. 

[A copy of this Map will be found appended to State Papers of Henry VIII., Vol. 2., Part 3, 
and another copy in National Manuscripts of Ireland, Part IV.-l ; No. 5.] 

2. Hibernise, Britannias Insulse, Nova Descriptio, by Abraham OrteHus, 1572. 

3. Ortelius improved, or a new Map of Ireland wherein are inserted the principal Families of Irish 
and EngHsh Extraction, who possessed that kingdom on the commencement of the I7th Century. 
Published according to Act of Parliament by P. Wogan, Old Bridge No, 23, Dublin. 

4. A Topographical and Historical Map of Ancient Ireland by Baronies, by Philip MacDermott, 
M.D. attached to Connellan's Annals of the Four Masters. Published in 1846. (This Map has 
since been reproduced both in Ireland and in America).

By comparing the foregoing Lists with the Table at the end of this Report, it can be seen how 
far these families are at present represented in the localities formerly inha,bited by them and in 
the country at large. The above Tables, however, exhibit the information for counties proper, 
whereas the Tables on pages 27-29 and 31-73 are compiled by Registration Counties, i.e., groups of 
entire Poor Law Unions most nearly representing the area of the county proper. The differences 
are for the most part slight, but in a few instances the name may be found in the county proper 
immediately adjoining. 

It will be seen that some of these names have spread all over Ireland, such as Murphy, Kelly, 
Kennedy, Maguire, Quinn, &c. Some of these FamUies have disappeared, or have migrated to another 
part of the country, or their names have become so altered in process of time al to be incapable 
of identification. 

[In many cases, however, the descendants of the ancient families are still domiciled in the same 
tracts as their forefathers, as shown in the following instances : 

The MacCabes were a warlike clan originally from County Monaghan, but subsequently settled 
in County Cavan. At the present time they are largely represented in the popiUation of each of 
these counties. 

The MacCarthys were anciently Kings and Princes of Desmond, Southern Munster, i.e., County 
Cork, the greater part of Kerry, and portions of Waterford and Tipperary. The MacCarthys are 
now resident principally in the Counties of Cork, Kerry, and Limerick, more than half of them 
being found in County Cork. 



Registrar-General of Marriages, Births, and Deaths in Ireland. 21 

The MacDermotts were ancient Princes of Moylurg, having their territories in the Barony of 
Boyle, County Koscommon, and parts of the Parishes of Islandeady, Turlough and Breaffy, in 
Counties Sligo and Mayo. Their chief fortress "was on an island in Lough Key, near Boyle," and 
they were hereditary Marshals of Connaught. At the present time Connaught is the province in 
which the MacDermotts are principally found, and half of the persons of the name in that province 
belong to County Roscommon. 

The Munster MacMahons formerly possessed the greater part of the Baronies of Moyarta and 
Clonderalaw, in the County Clare, in which county the predominant name now is McMahon. 

The O'Bymes anciently possessed the greater part of the Barony of Ballinacor, County Wicklow, 
and wore powerful Chiefs in that part of the country. Byrne is the leading name now in the 
Counties of Wicklow, Dublin, and Louth. 

The original habitat of the O'Driscolls was the Barony of West Carbery, in County Cork, where 
O'Driscoll was Lord of Baltimore, and possessed the Island of Cape Clear and adjacent territory. 
The great majority of the present DriscoUs are to be found there. 

The O'Doghertys were a powerful Sept in County Donegal, and were located in Inishowen 
Barony, of which O'Dogherty was Lord. The Doghertys or Dohertys are numerously represented 
there at the present time. 

The O'Flahertys were originally located in the Barony of Clare, County Galway, but in the 
thirteenth century, having been expelled from this territory, thej' settled in the Barony of Moycullen, 
and were styled Lords of lar Conacht or West Connaught. A large number of the Flahertys are 
now to be found in the Baronies of Moycullen, Ross, and Ballinahincb, in County Galway. 

The O'Gallaghers were a warlike Clan in the Baronies of Raphoe and Tirhugh, County Donegal. 
As will be seen from the Table on page 28, Gallagher is now the most numerously represented name 
in County Donegal. 

In ancient times the O'Keeffes were Marshals and chief military leaders of Desmond. They 
possessed several castles, and were styled Princes of Fermoy. The principal county for the 
Keeffes and O'KeeflFes at present is Cork. 

The O'Mahonys were anciently located in Cork and Kerry, where they were powerful Chiefs 
and sometimes styled Princes. They had several castles along the sea-coast. In County Cork an 
O'Mahony was Lord of Ivaugh, in the Barony of West Carbery, and an O'Mahony was Chief in 
Kinalea Barony. In County Kerry there was a Chief of the name in the Barony of Iveragh, and 
there were O'Mahonys in the Barony of Clanmaurice. The majority of persons of the name of 
Mahony or O'Mahony are still found in these two counties. 

The O'Malleyfe were celebrated Chiefs whose territory comprised the present Baronies of 
Murrisk and Burrishoole in the County Maj-o. The Malleys and O'Malleys are now located 
principally in the two baronies named, and in that of Erris, in County Mayo. 

The O'iMeaghers were formerly powerful Chiefs possessing the Barony of Ikerrin, in County 
Tipperary, of which O'Meagher was Lord. The Meaghers or Mahers are principally io\x^_J»'-'^Mi' 
County Tipperary at present. 

The O'Mearas had an extensive territory in the Barony ofJiI*»«^ '!?i moiid, County Tipperary, in 
which O'Meara was a Chief. The name of their principg^'resideuce, Tuam-ui-Meara, is still retained 
in the town of Toomyvara. The Mearas or O'Mearas are still numerous in that locality. 

The name Moriarty is now largely represented in County Kerry, in which county the O'Moriartys 
were Chiefs in the Barony of Dunkerron. 

O'Mulvey was a Chief in the Barony of Mohill, County Leitrim, in which county about 50 per 
cent, of persons bearing the name Mulvey are now found. 

The name Noonan occurs chiefly in Cork, in which county the O'Noonans formerly dwelt. 
O'Noonan was a Chief in Duhallow Barony, and there were O'Noonans in Barrymore and Kinalea 
Baronies 



22 Appendix to the Twenty-ninth Report of the 

There were two branches of the O'Ryans or O'Mulrians — the Carlow branch, in which county 
O'Ryan was Prince of Idrone — and the Tipperary branch, in which county one O'Ryan was Lord of 
Owney and Arra, and another Chief of Borrisoleigh. They also had possessions in County Limerick. 
The Kyans are now found in the Counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Limerick, and Tipperary, the last 
county having by far the largest number. The Ryans of Tipperary are in some places so numerous 
that they are distinguished in the records by additional names a{)pended to the surnames, such 
as — Ryan (Bawn) ; Ryan (Buckly) ; Ryan (Cooper) ; Ryan (Cormack) ; Ryan (Corney) ; Ryan 
(Dalton) ; Ryan (Dan) ; Ryan (Jack) ; Ryan (James) ; Ryan (Larry) ; Ryan (Ned) ; Ryan (Owen) > 
Ryan (Russell) ; Ryan (Tim Daniel). 

There were several branches of the O'Sullivan family ; one was located in County Cork where 
they were Princes of Beara, now Bere and Bantry Baronies, and were called O'Sullivan (Beara). 
Another (O'Sullivan Mor), occupied portion of County Kerry, where they were Lords of Dunkerron. 
At the present time the SuUivans and O'Sullivans are most numerous in the Counties of Cork 
and Kerry. 

The O'Tooles were celebrated Princes of Imaile, in County Wicklow, and had their seat in the 
Glen of Imaile which still retains that name. Their power extended into County Kildare. A 
considerable number of Tooles are still resident in the County Wicklow. 



Danish Names. 
From the Ninth to the Twelfth Centuries the Ostmen or Danes came to Ireland and established 
themselves on the seaboard. They founded the Kingdom of Dublin a.d., 852, and their chief towns 
were Dublin, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, and Limerick. Some of the surnames now in use are 
traceable to Danish origin. Amongst these may be mentioned Betagh, Coppinger, Dowdall, Drom- 
goole or Drumgoole, Gould, Harold, Palmer, Plunkett, Skiddy, Sweetman (Swedeman), Trant, &c. 
The name " Ost " is met with in County Wicklow. 

Dr. MacDermott, in his annotations to the Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters, states : — 
"Many families of Danish origin took Irish surnames, prefixing and Mac, so that their 
descent cannot now be ascertained, and several of their chiefs took Irish Christian names, particularly 
that of Patrick in honour of the patron saint of Ireland. The Danes and Norwegians being in 
possession of Dublin and some other parts of the qpuntry, and having maintained their colonies 
there for more than 300 years, there is consequently much of Danish blood in the Counties of 
Dublin and Meath, particularly in Fingall, and there are many families of Danish descent mixed 
by intermarriages with the old Milesian Irish." 

Anglo-Noeman Names. 

The circumstances connected with the Anglo-Norman invasion need not be referred to here. It 

suffices to say that through it the second great graft on our Celtic . stock tobk place, many of our 

present surnames, notwithstanding the changes in form and spelling which time has wrought in 

them, being traceable to an Anglo-Norman source. As examples the following may be given : 

Barry, Bellew, Bermingham, Burke, Carew, Clare, Cogan, Dalton, Darcy, De Courcy, Delamere, 
Dillon, FitzEustace (Eustace), Fitzgerald, Fitzhenry, Fitzmaurice, Fitzsimons, Fitzstephen, 
Gernon, Grace, Hussey, Keating, Lacy, Le Poer, Marshall, Montmorency, Mortimer, Nangle, Nugent, 
Petit, Prendergast,~FuroelI, Eo.?^'^, Staunton, Taaffe, Talbot, Tuite, Tyrrell, Verdon, Vesey. 

Dr. MacDermott, in a note to the "Aiinals^of the Four Masters," states: — "The following 
Anglo-Norman or English families adopted Irish surnames : — The de Burgos or Burkes, of Connaught 
took the name of Mac William, and some of them that of MacPhilip ; the de Angulos or Nangles, of 
Meath and Mayo, changed the name to MacCostello ; the de Exeters, of Mayo, to MacJordan • the 
Ban-etts, of Mayo, to MacWattin ; the Stauntons, of Mayo, to M'Aveeley ; . . . . the de 
Berminghams, of Connaught and other places, to MacFeorais, or Peorais ; . . . the Fitzsimmons 
of the King's County, to MacRuddery ; .... the Poers, of Kilkenny and Waterford, to 
MacShere; the Butlers, to MacPierce; the Fitzgeralds, to MacThomas and MacMauiice ; the de 
Courcys, of Cork, to MacPatrick ; the Barrys, of Cork, to MacAdam ; and many others, in like 
manner."

English' Names. 

Large numbers of English came to Ireland from the 12th to the 18th century, and from these 
sources the great bulk of the Engljsh names now found in Ireland are derived. These names are 
very numerous, though in many cases, as compared with the old Celtic names, they represent but 
a small number of persons. 

The following are a few specimens of English names numerously represented : — 

Adams; Andrews; Arnold; Ashe; Atkinson; Baker; Barr; Barton: Bates; Bennett; Berry; 

Bingham; Bolton; Bradshaw; Brooks: Canning; Carlisle; Carter; Christy; Cooper; Cox. 

Crowe ; Downes ; Edwards; English; Field ; Fisher ; Freeman; Goodwin; Hall; Harper; Harris; 

Harrison; Hawthorne; Henry; Hewitt; Hill; Holmes; Hopkins; Hunt; Hunter; Jackson; 

Jenkins ; Johnson ; Johnston ; Kidd ; King ; Lamb ; Lane ; Little ; Long ; Mitchell ; Morton ; Nash ; 

Osborne ; '^Pearson ; Richardson; Roberts; Robinson; Salmon; Shaw; Short; Simpson; Small; 

Somers; Swan; Taylor; Thornton; Turner; Walker; Wall; Waters; Watson; Webb; Webster; 

West; White; Woods; Wrighl 

Cornish Names. 

Some Cornish or Briton names are also found in Ireland, such as Jagoe, Lanyon, Pascoe, Pender, 
Pendred, Penrose, Tredennick, Tresilian, Trevelyan, Vivian, &c. 

Welsh Names. 

Welsh immigrants also found their way into Ireland. The name " Walsh " — Irish, Brannagh or 
Breathnach, a Briton or Welshman — occurs in early times in the Gounties of Cork, Dublin, Kerry, 
Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford, and Wicklow ; and at the present day the name is 
largely represented in nearly every county in Ireland, especially in Cork, Mayo, Waterford, Gal way, 
Dublin, and Wexford. According to some ancient authorities, Welshmen of the following names 
settled in Ireland after the English Invasion: — Howell, Lawless, Lillis, Lynagh, Lynnott, and 
Merrick. , 

A remarkable colony from Wales, yet not consisting solely or even mainly of Welsh, was formed 
at an early date in the Baronies of Forth and Bargy, county Wexford. It is supposed to have been a 
settlement made at the time of the Norman Invasion. The interest in this colony is centred in the 
fact that it continued to exist separate from the native Irish, and maintained its peculiarities, 
character, and language down to a recent period ; and traces of its special characteristics are still to 
be found. 

Reference is made to his colony in a series of returns supplied to Sir William Petty, written 
about 1680. In them it is stated "they preserve their first language and almost only understand 
the same unless elsewhere educated." Also that "they observe the same form of apparel their 
predecessors first used," which is, " according to the English mode, of very fine exquisitively dressed 
frieze, comlie, but not costlie ; that they invioblie profess and maintain the same faith and form of 
religion," and that " they seldom dispose of their children in marriage but unto natives or such as 
will determine to reside in the Barony." Several peculiar customs and usages of the colony are also 
detailed in the returns referred to. 

In 1788 General Vallancey visited the colony and embodied the result of his researches in a paper 
which is printed in the Second Volume of the Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy, and in 
which he gives a specimen of the old dialect of the colony. 

He remarks : — " This Colony have preserved their ancient manners, customs, and language ; and 
" fully occupying every inch of ground, the natives could never obtain a re-establishment therein. 
" As population increased some of the English have been obliged to remove into the neighbouring 
" baronies within these fifty years, and by an intercourse with the Irish the language of these 
" emigi-ants became corrupted, and these by their connections with their kindred remaining in the 
" baronies of Bargie and Forth have in some measure introduced this corrupted dialect there." 

He mentions, amongst the names of the old colonists at that date — " Hore," " Cod," " Stafford," 
^' Whitty," " Rossiter," " Sinnott," " Stephen," " Quiney," and " Walsh." 



24 Appendix to the Twenty-niyith Report of the 

In Hall's Ireland also (published in J 841), there are references to this interesting colony. 

Mr. and Mr.s. S. C. Hall observe :—" The baronies of Bargy and Forth, which extend along the 
" coast from the Bay of Bannow to the Bay of Wexford, form perhaps the most singular and 
" remarkable district of Ireland, its inhabitants being to this day ' a peculiar people.' . . The 
"peninsular position of these baronies— the sea on the one side, and the mountain of Forth on the 
" other — contributed, no doubt in a great degree, to the safety and stability of the Colony ; yet had 
" it not been for the numerous castles, or, more properly speaking, ' fortalices,' the ruins of which 
" form so remarkable a feature in the landscape, the courage and daring of the native Irish would 
" have caused their extermination. Over a surface of about 40,000 acres there are still standing the 
" remains of fifty-nine such buildings ; and the sites of many more can be still pointed out." 

A paper on the subject of the dialect of the Barony of Forth was read by the Right Rev. Dr. Russell, 
late President of Maynooth College, at the Dublin Meeting of the British Association in August, 
1857. 

After an examination of the fragments of the language extant he states : — " T venture, therefore, to 
"conclude that the barony of Forth language is a lineal descent of the English introduced by the 
"first settlers, modernized in its forms, and also, though in a less degree, in its vocabulaiy." 

Dr. Russell also remarks — " Like Irish in what used to be the Irish-speaking districts, the I'orth 
language has become unfashionable in Forth itself, and the young generation are unwilling even to 
acknowledge an acquaintance with it, much less to employ it as a medium of ordinaiy intercourse." 

Dr. Mitchell, Inspector of Registration, who visited the locality in June last, states : — " There is a 
" very great change over the face of this district since Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Hall — 50 years ago — 
" described its inhabitants as still ' a peculiar people.' The chauge is easily explained bj' the opening 
" up of the whole country — the district markets — and the facilities for travel afibrded by railway 
" train and steamboat. There' is no doubt, I think, that the present inhabitants are largely the 
" offspring of intermarriage with native Irish. It is only among the most illiterate that any consider- 
" able number of words of their old dialect is now used. Of the surnames given by Vallancey 
" two, viz., Stephen and Quiney, appear to have died out in these Baronies, and others have spread 
" all over the county and beyond. The names Codd, Stafford, Sinnott, Hore, Rossiter, and Walsh 
" are very common in the town of Wexford." 

Scottish Names. 
From an early period there were migrations of Scotch from Scotland to Ireland where they 
settled in Ulster, but the formal Plantation of Ulster took place in the seventeenth century. The 
majority of these settlers were Scotch, 

On reference to the Table at the end of this Report the very frequent occurrence of Scotch names 
in the Province of Ulster will be seen. The following may be given as examples — Stewart, 
Campbell, Scott, Miller, McKenzie, Ross, McKay, Paterson, Fraser, Morrison, Cameron, Mcintosh, 
McGregor, Kerr, Graham, Sinclair, Gordon. 

Huguenot Names. 
Representatives of other races have from time to time settled in this country ;• prominent amongst 
these may be mentioned the French and Flemish Huguenots. The Irish Parliament in 1674 passed 
an Act granting letters of naturalization to the refugees. The Duke of Ormonde, then Viceroy 
patronized them, and through his instrumentality, colonies of them were founded at Dublin 
Kilkenny, Portarlington, Waterford, Cork, and Lisburn. 

They started manufactures of silk, gloves, lace, cloth, and linen. The manufacture of " Irish 
Poplin " in the Liberties of Dublin had its origin with these industrious foreigners, and in the north 
of Ireland they established the manufacture of linen and cambric. 

Many Huguenot names are still amongst us ; the following may be given as examples— Barr^, 
Blacquiere, Boileau, Chaigneau, Du Bedat, Champion, Chenevix,' Cprcellis, Crommelin, Delacherois, 
Drelincouit, Dubourdieu, Du Cros, Fleury, Gaussen, Logier, Guerin, Hazard (Hassard), La Touche,' 
La Fevre, Lefroy, Lefanu, Maturin, Perrin, Saurin, Trench, Des VignoUes. 



Registrar-General of Marriages, Births, and Deaths in Ireland. 25 

I have been furnished by Dr. Mitchell with the following notes regarding the Huguenot settle- 
ment in Portarlington at present : — 

" There is at the present time (June, 1893) in the Townland of ' Deerpark ' near Portarlington, a 
colony of men of pure Huguenot descent." 

" Mr. Smiles, in his book on ' The Huguenots ' (1867), states, the Blancs, butchers, transmitted 
the business from father to son for more than 150 years, and they are still recognisable at 
Portarlington under the name of ' Blong.' Not only is this so, but there are three families of them 
there now, two of which have retained (or returned to) the original spelling of the surname Blanc — 
as can be seen in our Register Books, and the trade of butchering is still followed by the family. 

" The Medical Officer of Cloneygowan Dispensary District, Dr. Tabuteau, represents another 
Portarlington Huguenot family, and his father, the late Dr. Tabuteau (now eighteen years dead), 
remembered the time when Divine service was conducted in French. The surnames Boileau and Des 
Voeux have disappeared from this locality only a few years ago. General Boileau and Major Des 
Voeux with their famiKes having left Portarlington. There is an aged carpenter here, ' La Combre,' 
of pure Huguenot descent, so that this name also, as well as another, ' Champ,' may be added to the 
list. The ' Oorcellis ' family now spell it Corsellis, and the full surname ' Des VignoUes ' still 
occurs." 

German Palatinate H^ames. 

In the Eighteenth Century there was a German migration into Ireland from the Palatinate of the 
Rhine. In 1709 a fleet was sent to Rotterdam by Queen Anne, which brought over about 7,000 
of these refugees to England. About 3,000 were sent to North America, where they settled in 
Pennsylvania and North Carolina. The remainder, except a few families which remained in 
England, came over to Ireland, and settled principally in the County of Limerick. They were 
allowed eight acres of land for each man, woman, and child, at 5s. an acre, and the Government 
engaged to pay their rent for twenty years. They were an industrious and frugal race, but their 
numbers were subsequently largely reduced by emigration to America, and at the present day but 
few, comparatively, remain. 

Ferrar, the historian of Limerick, describes thus this German Colony as it existed in 1780 : — " The 
" Palatines preserve their language, but it is declining ; they sleep between two beds ; they appoint a 
" burgomaster to whom they appeal in all disputes. They are industrious men, and have leases from the 
" proprietor of the land at reasonable rents ; they are, consequently, better fed and clothed than 
" the generality of Irish peasants. Besides, their mode of husbandry and crops are better than 
" those of their neighbours. They have by degrees left off their sour krout, and feed on potatoes 
" milk, butter, oaten and wheaten bread, some meat and fowls, of which they rear many. * * * 
" The women are very industrious * * * . Besides their domestic employments and the care of 
" their children, they reap the corn, plough the ground, and assist the men in everything. In short 
■ "the Palatines have benefited the county by increasing tillage, and are a laborious, independent 
" people, who are mostly employed on their own small farms." 

Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Hall describe the " Palatines " in 1840 as " different in character, and distinct 
" in habits from the people of the country." They state : — " Th6 elders of the family preserve in a 
" great degree the language, customs, and religion of their old country ; but the younger mingle and , 
" marry with their Irish neighbours." 

Dr. Mitchell has kindly furnished me with the following remarks regarding the present condition 

of this colony — 

" I find, by personal inquiries made on the spot (May, 1893), that Palatines bearing the following 
surnames at the present time occupy farms in and round Court Matrix, Ballingran, and 

Killiheeji : Baker, Bovanizer, Bowen (Adam Bowen was one of my informants, interviewed on 

his own 8 (Irish) acre farm near Court Matrix), Doube (pronounced 'Dobe'), Delmege (or 
•Delmage'— as they themselves pronounce it), Gilliard, Latchford, Ligier (pronounced 'Leg-iar,' 
with the 'g' hard), Millar, Lodwig, Modlar, Pyper, Reynard (pronounced 'Reinart'); Ruttle, 
Shire, Stark, Switzer (Jacob Switzer was another of my informants, whom ' I interviewed on his 
own 24!-acre farm at Court Matrix), Teskey, Travers. 

« The above 19 names undoubtedly represent more than double that number of families in the 
localities specified above ; several of them also occur at Adare. There are several families of the 
name ' Switzer,' several of the name 'Delmege,' and ' Ruttle,' and so on. 

"When I got to Askeaton District, I found a Palatine name, 'Ruttle,' on a signboard (a very 



26 Appendix to the Twenty-ninth Report of the 

unusual circumstance). Generally, Palatine sons succeed their fathers on the same farms onginally 
allotted to their ancestors in 1709. And however those may have fared who have since left Co. 
Limerick for America, the Palatines here at present are tenant farmers, as a rule, like the original 
settlers, many of the 8-acre lots having been consolidated into larger farms. 

"At Court Matrix, I saw the house of the Rev. Mr. Doube— a Palatine Clergyman at present 
stationed in Co. WickloW. When I got to Pallaskenry, I found along with some of the surnames 
already given, others, viz. :—Neazor, Heavenor, Smyth (spelled with a 'y' and originally 'Schmidt'). 

"The Christian names for males, Nehemiah, Christopher, Adam, Jacob, Jethro, Julius, Ebenezer, 
and for females — Dorothy, &c., are still of common occurrence. 

"Differing originally in language (though even the oldest of the present generation know nothing 
of the German tongue, spoken or written), as well as in race and religion from the natives among 
whom they were planted, these Palatines stiU cling together like the members of a clan, and 
worship together. Most of them have a distinctly foreign type of features, and are strongly built, 
swarthy in complexion, dark-haired and brown-eyed. The comfortable houses built in 1709 are in 
ruins now. I traced, with Jacob Switzer's aid, the original " Square " of Court Matrix in the 
ruined walls still standing ; I also traced in the very centre of this square the foundations of the 
little Meeting House in which John Wesley occasionally preached to them in the interval, 1750- 
1765. Modem houses stand there now, but not closely grouped together. They are all comfortable 
in appearance, some thatched, some slated, some of one storey, others of two. Nearly all have a 
neat little flower garden in front, and very many have an orchard beside, or immediately behind the 
house. There is all the appearance of thrift and industry among them." 

Jewish Names. 

The last colony to which attention need be called is that resulting from the recent Jewish 
immigration. For many years Jews have been resident in Dublin and other chief cities in Ireland, 
but during the decade, 1881-90, their numbers were largely increased by the arrival of Russian 
and Polish Jews. Most of these have settled in Dublin, where, on the south side of the city, they 
have formed a Jewish Quarter, and opened several Synagogues. The Marriage and Birth Indexes of 
this Office now afford abundant evidence of their presence in our midst. 

As shown by the Census Returns, they principally follow the occupations of — Commercial 
Clerks, Commercial Travellers, Drapers, Dressmakers, General Dealers, Merchants, Pedlars, Shop 
Assistants, Tailors and Tailoresses. 

The following may be given as examples of the names of the Jewish Settlers : —

Fridberg. 


Matufsky. 


Stuppel. 


Weiner. 


Greenberg.

In addition to the foregoing there are a number of foreigners who have settled in Ireland from 
France, Germany, Italy, and other countries, and whose names appear in our Indexes. 



Though " Birthplace " is not an accurate test of nationality, it may be of interest to attach the

CHAPTER V. 

DISTRIBUTION OF SURNAMES. 

In the Table at the end of this Report, will be found the Surnames in Ireland represented by- 
five Entries and upwards in the Births Index for 1890, and the number of such Entries in each 
Province, together with notes as to their distribution by Coimties. It was not deemed advisable 
to exhibit in tabular form the details in that Table by Counties, but the relative numerical strength 
of the principal Surnames in each Registration County is as follows * : —

It will be seen that although the name "Murphy" is the most numerous in the country at 
large, it does not occupy the leading place in many of the counties. In the Province of Leinster in 
two Counties only — Wexford and. Carlow — does it stand first. With regard to this name in the 
former County, the Earl of Courtown in a recent paper on the " Celts and Teutons in Ireland,' 
remarks as follows : — 

" Murphy is the Anglicised form of MacMurrough, the old regal family of Leinster. On the death of 
Dermot MacMurrough, the last acknowledged King of Leinster, his rights, by English law, passed to his only 
legitimate child, Eva, wife of Richard de Clare, Earl of Pembroke, known as Strongbow. The legitimate 
male line was continued in the descendants of Dermot's brother Morrogh, who continue to hold lands in 
North Wexford. This name is by far the most numerous in the county, and is found in every part of it." 



In the counties of Dublin, Louth, and Wicklow, " Byrne " is the most common name, whereas 
in Kildare and King's County, " Kelly " heads the list. In Longford and Meath, " Eeilly " is the 
principal name, and in Kilkenny, " Brennan." In Queen's County, " Dunne " appears at the head 
of the list, and in Westmeath, " Lynch." 

In the Province of Munster, " Sullivan" is the predominant name in Cork and Kerry, followed, 
in the former county, very closely by the name ." Murphy." " Ryan " heads the list in Limerick and 
Tipperary, while " McMahon " and " Power " are the leading names, respectively, in the counties of 
Clare and Waterf ord. 

In the Province of Ulster in one county only, namely, Armagh, is the name " Murphy " in excess 
of the others. In Antrim, " Smith " appears first ; in Cavan, " Reilly ;" in Donegal, " Gallagher ;" 
and in Down, " Thompson." The leading name in Fermanagh is " Maguire," and in Londonderry, 
" Doherty " stands at the head of the list. The principal names in Monaghan and Tyrone are 
" DuflFy " and "Quinn," respectively. 

In the Province of Connaught, in no one county does the name " Murphy " occupy the principal 
position. In Galway and Roscommon the name " KeUy " takes precedence, and in Leitrim that 
name and " Reynolds " are the first two on the list and equally represented. " Walsh " stands first 
ia the county of Mayo, and " Brennan " heads the list in Sligo.
